in the Alt Linux distribution using Sylpheed 3.6.0 I found a problem that server
SSL certificates can't be verified, e.g.:

The SSL certificate of pop.gmail.com cannot be verified by the following
unable to get local issuer certificate

Subject: /C=US/ST=California/L=Mountain View/O=Google Inc/CN=pop.gmail.com
Issuer: /C=US/O=Google Inc/CN=Google Internet Authority G2

MD5 fingerprint: B4:59:E7:91:3A:CE:31:44:27:DA:5C:3D:A6:27:8C:98

This happens because in Alt Linux certificates bundle is located in the
/usr/share/ca-certificates directory and sylpheed searches in the /etc,
/etc/ssl and /etc/ssl/certs.

Proposed patch fixes this problem by adding /usr/share/ca-certificates to the
list of search directories. This patch was accepted by the Alt Linux.

Hi! Any comments?
Proposed patch works fine with sylpheed-3.7 as well.
